Become nocturnal during the summer
And return to normal during the winter–
Stay out with the fireflies and the foxes and the wolves,
Especially the wolves.
Pack a midnight lunch
And eat it while lying flat on a grassy knoll with your nose an inch from the sky;
Don’t sit up or you’ll hit your head.
And then run
Down darkened streets past dormant houses
Destination: somehow evades you,
But if you run fast or far enough, you’ll find it
And then you’ll sit down
And enjoy the moment, this perfect place you’ve found–
The place your soul was searching for, scouring for, screaming for.
That’s up to you.
The night is young and so are you:
Date her before you’re both too late–
And it’s not a good date if you both end up in bed.
Don’t be a slut!
No, treat her nicely.
You have to spend at least ha
——————————————––lf of your lives together;
Don’t waste this night!
